hear you. >> a time for change has come! chris: facing mount rushmore. he promised us change and said he would be transformative, the kind of president who turned history. has the time come for barack obama to learn from a leader who did, the most inspiring democrat of our time. does jack kennedy have stuff to teach barack obama? the brothers and sisters, kennedy had the irish mafia. obama has tried to do it alone. has he have time to build a team. political confederates who can fight for him. can he pull a solo act and start to lead? finally, bad news bears. where do they find this crew? perry is falling, bachmann is falling. something is raising cain but nobody knows what. with time flying, the vast american middle is fleeing. with their chances good, why are the republicans so bad? hi, i'm chris matthews. welcome to the show. with us today. the "washington post" bob woodward, nbc's andrea mitchell, the bbc's katty kay and the "new york magazine's" john heilemann. first up, since the 1957 shock of sputnik, there have been few times as unsettling as today. can we shake off this sense

, gaddafi's fall with not a single u.s. casualty, is more evident that republicans can't hit this democrat as soft on national security. i'm chris matthews. with us today, michael duffy, "time" magazine, cnn's gloria borger, nbc's kelly o'donnell and "the washington post's" david ignatius. first up, with two months before voting starts, where's the excitement over the guy who looks like the nominee. see if you detect resignation on the conservative side. >> the conventional wisdom is that romney has the lead and he's the presumptive nominee. >> i would be very, very surprised right now, almost if romney didn't get the nomination. am i being naive here or foolish? >> i think if you had to bet the house on that, you'd win big. chris: this week's associated press poll has romney at 30% but herman cain and rick perry have 39%. it looks like they don't have a thrill up their leg about this guy. they're not excited about this guy, nobody is on the right. but he looks like he's creeping up to inevitability. this may be the one year when likability doesn't matter. with housing starts slowing and u

? even a outspoken guy from jersey. with us today, "new york" magazine, john hileman and rana foroohar and nia-malika henderson and david ignatius. we have a president and a congress getting no where fixing our generation economic prospects. we have chris christie swooned over for telling a reagan library audience that barack obama has to talk honestly about the big challenges. >> lead on the tough issues by telling your citizens the truth about the depth of our challenges. tell them the truth of the difficulty of the solutions. this is the only effective way to lead america during these troubling times. chris: barack obama is himself giving us a more from the straight from the shoulder approach. >> economies aren't growing as fast as they need to. and that affects us as well. and historically, after financial crises, recessions are deeper and they last longer than after the usual business cycle recessions. chris: americans want realism. they know something is different about this downturn. a quarter of the country sees a long-term decline ahead and a third of the country, and the opti

what i think. hi, i'm chris matthews. welcome to the show. with us today, "time magazine"'s joe klein, the bbc's katty kay, the "washington post" nia-malika henderson and the national joirnl's major garrett. our country is not full of haters and angry desperate people. it's a country between the political 40-yard lines. how is the obama presidency changed the country's thinking? we looked at a side byside of this week's "wall street journal" nbc poll and the same poll four years ago. in a dratdra matic shift, voters on both the far left and far right have moved to the middle. the number of independents has risen during the obama term. up 1% in that time and that's a historically big move. it's an america that fundamentally gets the difficulties confronting president obama, but feels he may be over his head. right now, it looks receptive to the untested but steady mitt romney over the president. romney's negative poll numbers are much lower than obama's, 29% negative for romney against 40% negative for obama. joe, it looks like the poll that nbc takes and the "wall street journal" comp

. i'm chris matthews. welcome to the show. with us today, hdnet, dan rather, bbc's katty kay. bloomberg tv's lizzie o'leary. and the huffington post, howard fineman. first up, a year and a month from now we will either say yes to a new four-year term for president obama or turn the job over to either mitt romney or rick perry. that's now. what it looks like is the true choice. the latest polls are very tough for president obama. 55% of voters say they do not believe he will win. so if you're romney, on top in g.o.p. polls you might be very hopeful. but not so fast, mitt. consider these reasons why it still could be rick perry. first, perry's got more debates to come. his big drop came after debate mistakes. romney won three in a row and can't budge above 25%. what happens if perry has a good debate? also, perry's got cash to hang in there. he raised a hefty $17 million in just the first few weeks. and finally, so far, mitt romney is not drinking the tea. his refusal to join the tea party and lead them to perry and dan, that's my big question. it looks like it's still a big fi

. tell us what the people are thinking about when we are going to climb out of these bad times. >> we are looking for any light at the end of the tunnel and it's a very long tunnel. it will be three years and the estimation of most of the people we surveyed that we will see any kind of good economic news. young people are honkering down, making the tough choices. chris: what are they doing differently? how this downturn, now that we know it's going to be a while, are they giving up long trips? >> they are trading down. and nordstrom and wal-mart are making any sales. the middle is gone, the middle class is gone and macy's is gone. they aren't taking vacations. two-thirds would take a pay cut to keep their jobs. there is a lot of worry. and they are worried about america's prospects than their own. chris: i'm hearing things, people like the high rollers are splitting their steaks, but is obama catching on to this sense of the times? >> finally. he is talking in that clip about how recovery after financial crises. a famous economist from harvard went to the president and economic advise
